Windows 7: BSOD during Windows Backup

BSOD during Windows Backup

I'm getting consistent BSOD when backing up via Windows Backup. Dell Precision T-3400 running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Possible culprit, a relatively new Crucial M4 256 GB Hard Drive. Another possible culprit, pagefile.sys settings. I do not know how to read or interpret BSOD dumps. Can anyone read this and point me in a direction?

I already ran a chkdsk and got this (looks clean to me)

I asked for those, as your BSODs are stop 0xF4, and the dumps are silent about the probable causes. Those are HDD access error. Sometimes caused by the HDD's itself and sometimes by some external forces like HDD monitoring Software/drivers.

Mostly, as those are causing during backup, it should be some program monitoring the HDDs, and causing conflicts. Apparently I am finding one right now ....
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\Paragon Partition Manager™ 10.0 Personal
Noticed the same program causing the same problem even earlier, a few times. I would suggest you to uninstall this program, at least as a test. For backing up, here we mainly follow two methods:
Choose one that you like out of these.

Also, you have a lot of items stored in Startup. They are not needed to be auto started with windows, but they often cause problems. Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
On another note, the BIOS is very old.
Code:
BIOS Version/Date    Dell Inc. A09, 6/4/2009
If you have any idea about it, you might try to update it.

Let us know the results.

I survived a Windows Backup, which means I think your suggestions appear to have solved the problem.

Unfortunately I can't tell you what the silver bullet was because I followed several of your suggestions at the same time to minimize the number of restarts.

* I uninstalled Paragon Partition Manager
* Reduced the number of Startup items
* Updated to the most recent Bios

I suspect Paragon was the culprit because that was installed at the same time as the new SSD as part of my data migration, and it just makes sense that Paragon would have been the culprit.

Yes, mate. Paragon was the main culprit .... the other things are just maintenance factors (you may say, a trick to increase the length of the post , but necessary)

Nice to know that you can back it up freely now
For any further issue, let us know.
